. the president wil usehis ample rhetoricts attack romney. obama won the debates against john mccain if 2008 by double digits. it is not just the romney team that is trying to lower expectations. check out what obama's senior campaign advisor said recently. >> look, mitt romney, i think, has an advantage because he has been through 20 of these debates in the primaries over the last year. he even bragged that he was declared the winner in 16 of those debates. so i think in that sense having been through this much more recently than president obama, i think he starts with an advantage. >> want to bring in our jim accosta, who is covering the romney campaign in wayne, indiana. i'm tired of the false flattery really. do people really buy this? >> reporter: no, i don't think buys it, suzanne, but, you know, campaign aides are going to do that, and th'regoin to keep doing it as long as we have elections in this is country. he compared romney to cy young. they hand it out to the best pitcher in baseball. there's a washington national that might win that this time around. geogonzalez. you know, it's
, this debate as to why president obama did not meet face-to-face with benjamin netanyahu in new york. the white house said it was a scheduling matter because the president was there early in the week. prime minister netanyahu was there the latter part of the week and they point out the two leaders talk frequently and jay carney making the point to say that a couple of weeks ago the president did speak with him by phone for more than an hour, so they're trying to show that there is this line of communication taking place here, but i think what's interesting to note is that yesterday we were tipped off about this phone call taking place today. that is quite unusual. the way this usually works is that the president has a phone call with a world leader, there is a readout that comes later on. sometimes we don't even get a readout. in fact, jay carney likes to say they don't read out every single phone call. perhaps it is indication of the pressure the white house is feeling for not having a face-to-face meeting. >> and for his part governor romney is also scheduled to have a telephone call with ben
, but there are a couple of senate debate this morning that c-span will carry live that you have been covering. what's been happening in wisconsin? >> it has been one of the most interesting senate races. very competitive. president obama seems to have pulled ahead by about five points in the latest poll. some of that has helped changed the trajectory of the race. earlier this month, the republican governor tommy thompson seemed to have momentum. at this point his rival tammy baldwin seems to be within the margin of error or a little to head out >> . why is that? guest: my best guess is that the baldwin surge corresponds with president obama getting some distance from romney. it still is competitive. governor thompson was perceived the best republican nominee. he had a very competitive primary. so wisconsin suddenly was back in the republican column. host: this tonight their first and only debate? guest: i don't know, but it's going to be an interesting evening, because governor thompson is a statewide grand. he's known as tommy and not the governor. he will seek to label baldwin as a liberal. she is one o
